“Walk In Shanghai”

Shanghai is known as one of the busiest and biggest cities in the world, and thanks to media artist JT Singh we are getting a unique tour through its sprawling network of streets, subway lines, highways and, of course, people. Reversing Singh’s own movement against that of the city allows for us to focus in on his own actions and journey amidst 24 million others, as well as appreciate the simple pleasure of walking versus other methods of transportation.

Singh is an expert on emerging cities and has advised many city leaders throughout North America, Asia and Europe, including those in Toronto, Shanghai, Tokyo and Fuzhou, on how to help cities engage with their global context through tactics such as enhancing local cultural economies, tourism and trade, developing international presence and attracting foreign investment.
